His eldest son, George W Bush, went on to become the 43rd USA president.

The statement concludes: "Our hearts ache with his loss, and we, with the American people, send our prayers to the entire Bush family, as we honor the life and legacy of 41".

Bush presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War.

The elder Bush saw his popularity swell with the United States' success in the Gulf War in 1991, only to watch it evaporate in a brief but deep recession. He was succeeded by Democrat Bill Clinton. "He is preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Barbara".

He referred to his ordering of USA troops to the border in October to install "barbed wire and fencing and various other things". US Customs and Border Protection, which polices the border, said its personnel had been assaulted and hit by stones.


In a statement from his office, Bush was described as a naval aviator, oil pioneer and the nation's 41st president. "The two had a very pleasant and private visit at the Bush residence, where they rekindled what was already a very warm friendship", Jim McGrath tweeted.

In February 2011, then President Barack Obama awarded Bush the highest U.S. civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom.

"Our family has had a front-row seat to the most incredible love story", Jeb Bush said.

Mrs Bush died in April 2018.

Mr. Bush had a form of Parkinson's disease that forced him to use a wheelchair or motorized scooter in recent years, and he had been in and out of hospitals during that time as his health declined.

The senior Bush had a lifetime of public service before he became president - as a young Navy pilot in World War II, Texas congressman, Central Intelligence Agency director and faithful vice president to Ronald Reagan.

Bush, a MA native, joined the USA armed forces on his 18th birthday in 1938 and eventually became the youngest naval pilot at the time.
